This isn't very long, so I'm not going to cut.

Fandom Resources
Some awesome person has put together a blog of all the songs used on the show Glee, including audio files to listen to online and links to buy the songs on iTunes, if you so desire. I admit to playing Matthew Morrison's cover of "The Thong Song," um, let's just say "more than once".

Recs: Star Trek & Star Trek RPS
So, first you need to go watch Fist/Kiss, by [profile] bendtothesun (an unbelievably hot Spock/Kirk vid, about how they, um, like to hit each other). Then, when you've got the visual of bruised, bloody and yet ungodly smokin' hot Chris Pine firmly in your mind's eye, you need to go read [personal profile] waketosleep's story, A Kiss With A Fist Is Better Than None, inspired by the vid. (I'd rate the vid R, and the story NC-17.)

You can thank me later. :-)

I admit, the premise of [personal profile] the_deep_magic's story, You Had Me At Pon Farr, where Zach (that's right, I said Zach) gets Pon Farr, is slightly ridiculous. But seriously, who cares. Zach Quinto, hit with Pon Farr, in need of sexytimes assistance by Chris Pine -- is there anything about that description that seems like you wouldn't read through anyway? (Pine/Quinto, NC-17, PWP)

Recs: Merlin RPS
[profile] franticsga's Lucky Knickers Will Get You Everywhere features an inexperienced and fixated Bradley James who can't stop thinking about Colin and what Colin could be doing with his mouth. I'm pretty sure that's the best formula for Merlin RPS ever invented.

[personal profile] onelittlesleep did fandom a favour and compiled all of Bradley James' dorky moments into one vid. Glorious.

Recs: Stargate (SGA & SG1)
[personal profile] eponymous_rose put together a giant SG-1 picspam of hugs, done season by season. I notice that many of the captions center on the theme "Daniel Jackson has had a bad day". It's true, that's a major Stargate motif - and it's probably there as fanservice, because hey, wouldn't you hug Michael Shanks every time he looked slightly woebegone?

[personal profile] princessofgeeks had a fandom hivemind moment and wrote the absolutely delicious harlequinesque fic You Never Get A Second Chance To Make A First Impression, in which Daniel is a wealthy relic-hunter Indiana Jones kinda guy (I think?) and Jack's undercover as his pool guy (Jack/Daniel, NC-17, favourite). I say "fandom hivemind moment" because she was inspired by [profile] kuonjil4's Satisfaction Guarantee, and didn't realize it 'till later. I think they're great together - [personal profile] princessofgeeks story acts as a natural (sexy) sequel, and I love the trope. Read [profile] kuonjil4's story first!

[personal profile] pir8fancier wrote a SGA epic the way that SGA epics used to be written, back when the fandom was new and shiny and we were all in love. Her Damned If You Do And Damned If You Don't is an absolutely fabulous post-canon story, where Atlantis is in San Fran bay, and Rodney's on vacation with Jennifer... when he realizes that something is extremely wrong. Link to part one of four - story is complete. (McKay/Sheppard, NC-17, action!)

So, Jason Momoa. You know him, right? Here are some pictures, if you've forgotten. Now, with that in mind, go read this. It's a scene from the novel "A Game Of Thrones," which is going to be made into a miniseries. Jason's been cast as Khal Drogo, which means he's going to be doing this scene. Naked. God bless the casting director responsible.

Time for some Mythbusters!

Star Trek owns me this week. I hope you don't mind terribly!

Trek
(all recs are Reboot 'verse, except for one, which is marked)

Two gen recs, both from the same author: [profile] _seven_crows wrote Search And Rescue, an awesome no-pairing (well, Kirk/Spock if you squint) team!fic adventure story where Jim's been kidnapped (and beaten up, and chained) and Spock & McCoy must rescue him.

She also wrote the fantastic Murphy's Law of Jim Kirk Diplomacy, where Kirk, Spock & McCoy are stranded in a malfunctioning shuttle.

Everything Else
In Bones fandom, [personal profile] daygloparker wrote From the Greek Paradeigma, Meaning "Example", which is hands-down my favourite Bones-decides-to-have-a-baby fic, ever. SO GOOD. Everyone's voices are spot-on, and Sweets made me laugh 'till I snorted coffee out my nose.

In the woefully-neglected Ironman fandom, [personal profile] awanderingbard wrote Firefighter, about how Pepper got the job. SO GREAT. (Pepper Potts, gen)

Recs: Merlin )

Recs: SGA )

I so totally need a Kirk/McCoy icon, and a Spock/Uhura one.

The "Star Trek Has Eaten My Brain" edition. I find ST:TOS fandom significantly more palatable when I can imagine Chris Pine instead of Shatner. Sorry Bill! The mystery left shortly after I read your bio and learned about the scene where Koko the Gorilla had you by the balls.

Rec: Merlin )

Rec: SGA )

Recs: New Trek )

Recs: ST:TOS )

All I want to do is read more NewTrek fic. Anyone want to suggest people to follow or comms to read?
merrily: Mac (Default)
The quick-and-dirty, four-days-late edition.

Just one Bones rec:
[livejournal.com profile] bredalot wrote Spit in My Hand, We're Scully and Mulder: Sometimes he thinks back to his very first case with Bones as his partner and wonders what the hell he was thinking. He watches television, he loved “The X-Files,” why the hell would he compare them to Mulder and Scully? (Booth/Brennan, UST, sweetness)

Recs: Merlin & Merlin RPS )

And just one SG-1 rec:
[livejournal.com profile] sabinelagrande wrote Marie of Romania, where nothing works without Sam. (Carter/Jackson/O'Neill, R)

And lastly one SGA rec:
[livejournal.com profile] riani1 wrote Things That Shouldn't Be In A Sock Drawer, about Sasha Obama accidentally ending up on Atlantis. (Yeah. Just repeat to yourself, there is no shame in fandom, and go read it where no one else can see you.)

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] crack_van, I found Han Solo And The Princess by Lasos -- a story about five times Han asked Leia to marry him. Leia's voice is wonderful here, spot-on and achy. (Star Wars)

In SG-1 land, [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic wrote Calibrate, where Daniel gives Jack a backrub. It's not even a sexytimes backrub, but it still made me a little... guh.

Recs: SGA )

And now I'm gonna clean out my crawl space. Which is exactly what I should be doing this beautiful spring day, I know.
merrily: Mac (Default)
Part two! Also, I've decided that if I'm only recommending one story from a fandom, I'm not gonna cut. I don't think this will be a controversial formatting decision. :-)

[livejournal.com profile] penknife asked for Iron Man Recs, and a whole slew of people responded. I haven't had a chance to go through this sea of riches yet, but the thread is here.

Recs: Merlin )

Recs: SGA )

In SPN: RPS land, [livejournal.com profile] hkath wrote If You Care To Stay, where an insane time-share arrangement leads Jenson & Jared to fall IN LUFF. Once you get over the inanity of the plot device, it's pretty awesome.

I really love this X-Files recommendation that arrived via [livejournal.com profile] crack_van: Sarken's excellent 5 Quirks Dana Scully Noticed About Fox Mulder During Their First Year As Partners. Really awesome and thoughtful and heart-wrenching.

That's it for today! Off to do laundry and figure out some new ways to turn hair metal into bluegrass.

Run, don't walk, to go read [livejournal.com profile] leah's new SGA robot-verse!AU story, Iron And Steel.

Seriously. This is the best thing you'll read all week. And the series, as a whole, is the some of the best fiction (not fanfiction, just fiction in general) I've ever read.

If you haven't read the preceding stories yet, the other two are The Soul & The Company Store and Muscle And Blood And Skin And Bones.

This whole series is a remix of [livejournal.com profile] lavvyan's Male Enhancement (although [livejournal.com profile] leah's work grew far beyond remix territory). [livejournal.com profile] lavvyan's original story is also wonderful and worth reading, and, in fact, you might want to read it first.

(Standard PSA: In case you're new to my lj, I make these posts every Sunday. They're all tagged, for your convenience.)

This reclist, in sum:
  • My favourite new SGA author: [livejournal.com profile] sabinelagrande. Click on the SGA recs link for her freaking awesome Porn Battle entries

  • My favourite new non-fandom author: Penelope Trunk, who writes about being an artist. Links to some of her posts in the "links: misc" section

  • Office/other show vid mashups equal awesomeness

  • Possibly I should upgrade this lj account, so I can get the friends-of-friends lists. Since I'm reading the poor man's version of it, anyway.

  • Every day I finish reading my RSS feed and my flist and I get this "is that all there is?" moment of disappointment. And then on Sunday I aggregate everything and am amazed at how much time I've spent on the webs. "All there is" is A LOT. No complaints, fandom!

    The round-up is pitiful this time, guys, so I'm not even going to do an lj-cut. I spent all week studying, which is why you get FOUR THINGS:

    1. Merlin fic: Who's Counting Anyway? by [livejournal.com profile] phantomjam
    Summary: Their seduction, like everything else between them, is a contest of wills. May I say, NNNGGGH? (NC-17, pining, first-time, hot-liek-whoa) ([livejournal.com profile] mklutz, I declare myself converted! This fandom rocks!)

    2. SGA/Firefly crossover: The Legend of the Browncoats & The Shining City by [livejournal.com profile] anna_bird and [livejournal.com profile] sasha_feather
    An alien thingy transports Serenity to the Pegasus galaxy. (What more reason do you need to read this? Okay -- here's one thing to think about -- Ronon meets Jayne!)

    3. A LOT OF MUSIC: The Bob Dylan/Johnny Cash recording sessions, which someone has made (legally!) free to download.

    4. FOODS: Some enterprising soul did a round-up of the best delis in Toronto. I want to try all of these! SMOKED MEAT. NOM NOM NOM.
